Install Dampers

Dampers can be installed to help absorb movement and increase a building’s earthquake resistance. The dampers act similar to automobile shock absorbers and can be integrated into cross bracing throughout the building frame. 

Effectiveness:

  • Somewhat to very effective.

Limitations:

  • Effectiveness depends on existing building behavior and location of dampers.
